AUTO-SYSTEM is an automated data base management system. It is a management tool to more efficiently create and control informational data bases, and the available ADP resources. The AUTO-SYSTEM eliminates, for many, the need of hiring their own programmers to write repetious soft-ware for 'standard' informational data bases. Programmers will still be needed to create customized or analytical software. The major emphasis of the AUTO-SYSTEM is on data base independence. The AUTO-SYSTEM was designed to be run on a 'WANG' 2200 T/C/VP or the 2200 WCS series CENTRAL PROCESSING UNIT (CPU) with a 32 K core. This system is disk operated and must have either a 2230 series disk (5 mega-bytes) or a 2260 series disk (10 mega-bytes). A 2270 series disk (a 1/2/3 drive floppy-diskette) may be integrated into the system for use as the system disk. It is also desirable that a 132 character, per line, high speed printer be available for outputting data. The major purpose of this manual is to introduce the AUTO-SYSTEM to managers, programmers and operators.
